Former spokesman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party Prince Dayo Adeyeye has described as a scam Governor Ayodele Fayoses’s move to employ 2000 applicants before the end of his tenure.
Adeyeye, who recently joined the All progressives Congress (APC), warned prospective jobs seekers to beware of the governor’s antics.
Fayose’s tenure will expire on 16 October.
“Few weeks after his inauguration as the state governor, he instructed the unemployed youths in the state to submit their curriculum vitae for jobs that he promised to create for them,” he said in a statement.
“Over ten thousand youths in the state paid the sum of one thousand naira each, to collect the forms for the jobs, but unfortunately, up till now, he has not employed one single youth in the state.”
He also said, “I wonder how a state governor, who has not paid the state workers for over seven months, owing pensioners months of gratuity and local government workers as well, is going to fund the employment of two thousand fresh employees.
“Here is somebody, who sacked all that were employed by the Dr Kayode Fayemi administration that now wants to employ 2000 workers.
“Workers and the youths should know that he is only deceiving them and does not have their interest at heart. The people cannot be deceived because an average Ekiti worker is more educated and enlightened than he is .”
